    Hi Fred,
    The paint work on the Joffe doesn't look at all bad to me.
    Just a bit 'used' as hard working tugs should lookπŸ‘
    I wouldn't mess with it.

    The Smit's problems are not so much with the paint work itself but the preparation underneath☹️ You can still see wood grain where there shouldn't be any!
    Just another coat of paint won't change that I'm afraidπŸ€”
    I'm afraid you've got a bit of sanding ahead of you!

    Sorry to hear of your colleague's loss. My commiserations.
    I know how he must have felt. I lost my 20 year old daughter in 2000.
    Cheers, Doug 😎

    The other one is a Billing Boats 1:75 Scale "Smit Rotterdam Ocean Going Tug Boat".

    I am thinking of calling her "Smit London" will have to do some repaint on her.

    That's all right, Mr Ryan. My Morse is so rusty, I could be sending him dimensions on Playmate of the Month.

    Nice pair of tugs, I have a joffre in my tug yard, but she is waiting for a drive train refit. Mine was given to me a few years ago and I tidied it up to take to shows.
    Whats the other one? Looks good and strong.
    Cheers Colin.

    The weekend just gone I purchased two boats from one of our club members who was selling off his son's boats, this is due to his son passing away from the big "C"

    I had to replace the mast on the Joffre as it was so bad as is all the paint work on both boats, but I am just going to leave them as is.
